One of the sweetest joys for me in Second Life is shopping. Nothing can lift my spirits more than bouncing from event to event catching all the sales on the latest and greatest items from my favorite creators. I am sure all of you fashionistas out there can feel me when I say, when I have on a fashion forward outfit I feel like I can concur the world. With that being said, I feel it is only right to give you all my view on some of the hottest events and fashion shows going on for the month of August, in order to help you take over the world.
Color Me Project
I always keep my eye in this event. They have a unique round theme in having all items one color. Therefore, this event is perfect for party goers attending those parties aimed with all one color themes. Not only do they provide the color you are looking for, but you will be ahead of the game fashion. This round is special because it is featuring two colors, black and white, when normally it only has a one color theme. My trusty side kick, smoky and I, headed out to check it out because black is one of my favorite colors to wear.
As soon as I touched down, two items immediately stood out to me. Powers Design provided a beautiful lingerie set, complete with a powerful collar and floral wings that is different than lingerie sets. I imaged myself in this set creating a sexy photo that would be Flickr worthy. See how fashion can inspires creativity? This set is priced at 225L which in my eyes is a great price for all it comes with.
Quickly I gravitated to the display from SUPERNATURAL. They graced this event with the Bella & Grace collection. I was intrigued with the details of the collar on the Bella body suit. I have yet to see something quite like this and felt it was a sexy enough to stand only or would be a great addition to a pair of jeans. Prices for the items in this collection range from 90L to 100L.
Of course there are many other great items there for your creative pleasures. This event only last until Aug. 17th so you may want to run on down there, after you finish reading this article…..lol

FAD Fashion Event
This is a fairly new event. FAD is only on their 3rd round and since I am always looking for somewhere new to shop I decided to check it out. I was delighted to land in front of an array of tropical colors. All of that brightness put me in the mood to shop for a hot swimsuit! AMERICAN BAZAAR and TASHI must have had the same feeling as I did, because they brought the fire!
AMERICAN BAZAAR’s Miami Bikini gave me life with its multicolor pattern. The bikini comes with 6 options which is always something I love because I am such a mix and match type of stylist. Each bikini is reasonably priced at 169l.
Looking for a complete look for the beach? TASHI brings you a sexy colorful one piece swimsuit called Jennifer. Pair this with the Tropical night Nail Polish and the Kim Sandals to ensure you turn heads on the beach. Prices range from 75L to 120L.
There are many wonderful tropical themed items at this event. I love the setup of the store and the ease of shopping. The displays were big, bright and colorful just like I like it! I will keep my eye on FAD from this day forward. This event ends August 25th.

I have my favorite events that I attend every round and FaMESHed is among the top of the list. The top of the line fashion that this event brings every round brings is like a ray of sunshine to me. Lately I have really enjoyed the shoe offering and this round didn’t disappoint. Both of my Favorite Reign and N core Design gave me exactly what I needed for the summers fashion trend.
Reign is known for their trendy style and attention to detail. They really out did themselves with the lace wedges. I am impressed with the high detail and bright colors these wedges have to offer. I don’t think there is a better wedge out there to add class and style to your best summer short set. Spending 250L for these is a great investment.
If you are like me, you are always looking for the perfect shoes for a summer night out with friends. N Core Design brings you the Enchained heels in many colors. I really like hoe N Core now provides shoes for slink feet, and these are no exceptions. With the metal options, these heels give you two styles in one for 300L. Bravo, N Core.
These great deals and many more will only be around until August 27th.
Amazing Impressions Modeling presents AFI Designs
I love fashion shows. It is a great way to see the latest styles up close and personal. Amazing Impressions Modeling (AIM) always brings the most organized shows on the grid. On Saturday August 15th AIM will be bringing you the 1st ever AFI designs runway show. I think this is going to be one of the best runway shows this summer. AFI creator DJ A.F.I is a real life Hollywood DJ and I am sure all of that glam will spill over onto the SL catwalk. The show starts at 8pm SLT, but I recommend getting there at least 15 mins early to grab a good seat. I will be in attendance and I hope to see you there too.
